Statistics: For Businesses, About Businesses
at the Royal Statistical Society, 12 Errol Street, London EC1Y 8LX

A one-day seminar about collecting and producing official statistics on businesses and showcasing potential uses in business, for research and for policy making.

Organised by the Quality Improvement and Official Statistics Sections fo the Royal Statistical Society and ENBES (the European Network for Better Establishment Statistics).

The seminar aims to highlight actual topics and issues in collecting and producing official statistics on businesses and, on the other hand, showcase potential uses of official statistics and businesses own data for business, for research or for policy making. In spite of the vast importance of business statistics for policy making at all levels of society, this branch of statistics has received comparatively less research and methodological attention.
